Spring Appeal

Michelle and Joey update

Helping broken hearts heal…

Calvert Hospice does so much more than provide quality end-of-life care.  We offer compassionate support to the families of our patients, but our grief support services are also available to any resident of Calvert County.  Participants have the opportunity to share their feelings, learn coping skills, and obtain support from others who are experiencing a loss.

In our Spring Appeal, Michelle Rice talks about dealing with the loss of her youngest son, Joey, to an accidental overdose at the age of 24.  After attending one or two support groups, she found that no one else talked about losing a loved one to drug addiction. A friend told Michelle about a specialized grief program offered by Calvert Hospice, ‘Gone But Never Forgotten.’ The program dealt with the stigma of substance abuse and loss, forgiving yourself and your loved one, and the complicated grief that follows their death.

Calvert Hospice has been working hard to expand our grief support programs to fit the needs of the community. In doing so, we have been able to reach many of our neighbors and help them to find hope and healing after losing someone close.  We can only continue to do this important work with your help.

Thank you for not only supporting Calvert Hospice, but also helping broken hearts heal.  Your gift can make both an immediate and lasting impact for those who are grieving.
